Zentgrafen-School, Frankfurt/Main

Project: In order to renovate and refresh the school gyms in Frankfurt a modular gym system was developed. This newly designed system was implemented for the Zentgrafen-School in Frankfurt-Seckbach.
Built as a passive building the construction grid reflects a visual rhythm, which divides the facades and the interior spaces horizontally and vertically.
The glass skin consists of satined glass surfaces held in place with our aluminum glass-fastening system. Colourful accents are achieved through depositing different coulors for each glass-fastening. The glass skin reflects playfully depending on the immediate surroundings.
A double imbricated facade system with vandal-proof countersunk screws was implemented at the Zentgrafenschule.
